You can ask Siri to look up individual game scores, player stats, and schedules. But what if you just want to know how your favorite team is doing overall? Yep, you guessed it. Siri can also find information on particular league standings as well.
One of the first things a lot of us do before heading to the movies is check out the ratings for the film we are interested in. Let's face it, movie theaters nowadays are anything but cheap and even though ratings can't always be the deciding factor, terrible ratings could indicate it'd be better to check it out once it hits Netflix or becomes available for rent on iTunes. Luckily, Siri can help you check movie ratings in just a few seconds with the help of Rotten Tomatoes.
Apple has had a special relationship with movie trailers for years. From the early days of QuickTime to iTunes and dedicated apps on iOS and the Apple TV, Apple's always provided high quality trailers for movies new and old. Siri is no different. Thanks to Siri, you're never more than a Home button press and a few words away from almost any movie trailer on the internet. Don't waste time searching — just ask Siri!
If you're wanting to head out and catch a new movie, Siri makes it easy to find out exactly what movies are playing near and what theaters they're available at. Once you find a movie you're interested in, Siri can even present you with showtime information.
Not only can Siri play songs, albums, and playlists from the built-in Music app on your iPhone or iPad, it can also interact with what you're currently playing. Basic commands like play, pause, skip, and shuffle may be easy when you're sitting around casually listening to music, but if you're driving, Siri lets you keep your hands on the wheel.
Sometimes when we're driving or we can't give our undivided attention to looking at our phones, Siri makes it super convenient to get things done. The Music app is no exception and Siri can interact with it in lots of ways, including playing specific songs.
Most of us want to know what the weather is going to be like when preparing for our day. Do we need to bring an umbrella or pack a sweatshirt in anticipation of a chilly evening? While there are lots of great weather apps, sometimes we just want quick weather information without having to dig through folders. So instead, just ask Siri about the weather!
If you use the built-in Notes app to keep track of your thoughts, you've most likely run across a time when you needed to update a note by adding text to it. While you could always launch the Notes app and manually type it out, you can also ask Siri to update it for you, which takes far less time.
The default Notes app on the iPhone and iPad is a great place to scribble down random thoughts. If you use it frequently you've most likely come across a time where you wish you could jot down a thought before you lose it. Luckily, if you're in a hurry you can ask Siri to do it for you!
